Interview Éléonore de Staël – alumnus of the class 2015 sponsored by Jean Niel

By: Nina Payrat | 28 Apr 2020
Presentation & career:
“I am Éléonore de Staël, I am a French perfumer working in Paris. I started at Accord&Parfums, maison Edmond Roudnitska and joined the creative lab of Jean Patou in 2016. In 2017, my perfume Indigo was awarded as part of the Corpo35 contest. As an independent nose I compose with 100% natural raw materials according to ethical manufacturing methods that reconcile respect for the environment and the principles of “Haute Parfumerie”.”
Would like to share your current projects??
“I am currently working on several projects one is a range of natural perfumes for the label ajnalogie (ajnalogie_paris), and I am honored to create the first perfume of Camille Vost handbag brand (www.camillevost.com).”
How do you imagine your career in 5 years?
“I am working along the first independent perfumer agency www.agencegrace.com focusing on creation and replacing the perfumer as an artist. I am choosing the heart of creation, formulation. I intend to grow my perceptions of composition and keep learning, seeking and transmitting perfume as an art.”
Concerning the GIP, why did you want to be a part of this adventure? Could you explain the impact of the GIP on your both professional and personal life? 

“I knew it was my chance to become a perfumer, as a first step. It was difficult to be part of GIP as it is a renowned school. As a student I got the chance to learn from great teachers. Furthermore, studying at GIP means being in deep connection with Nature and get to leave in the world capital of perfume: Grasse.
GIP is a professional experience and in addition a meeting point of cultures. As much as you learn from the quality program and rare raw materials, you also get to discover from each other, and find out about yourself. I met friends for life and a wonderful community.” 

Do you have any advice to the current or future students of the school? 
“It would be to follow the teachers’ advice, focus on the passion that lies within each one of you. It is such a great experience and the opportunity of a lifetime, but also fragile and precious. So be as committed as you can to your passion.”
